DTI software was established in 1995 with the intent to offer a complete solution package for Interactive TV markets, including hardware and software content. To that effect, at the onset, the company invested time and effort developing games and interfacing software (GUI) on the then selected Motorola HELLCAT (MPC-821) and later the BLACKBIRD set-top box running Microware's OS9000.
After mastering OS9000 software development, the company focused on producing a menu engine with the required supporting menu creation toolset, as well as a few demonstration applications for its system, this would become the cornerstone of DTI's offering. Targeting ease of use, changeability and growth potential, DTI produced the IMEN menu engine and IMED menu editing tools. In addition, the company focused on producing a number of demonstration applications to run within its menu engine product. We chose to produce games to make the demonstrations more attractive to potential customers.
These early development activities set the tone for DTI's future; by early 1997, the company had completed the development of a high quality embedded menu engine (IMEN) with appropriate supporting tools (IMED).
IMED (Interactive Menu Editor) is the tool used for IMEN by airlines and third party that outlines the screen display. – less–ZoomInfo
